Xetum is a brand that we have long liked here at WWR, and when we caught word of a sale, that made an interesting watch all the more appealing.
Thank you for checking in with our weekly feature, Watching the Web, where we take a break from reviews to recap the watch articles that we have found interesting from around the web, and highlight the articles that you have made popular on our own site. This week, I wanted to point you toward some detective work on a fake Patek Philippe, the launch of the Ophion brand of watches, and a Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver for fans of the America’s Cup. From our own site, the reviews of the Steinhart Ocean Titanium 500 and the Luminox SXC PC Carbon GMT, as well as the notice of a discount on Xetum watches were our top posts.
When it comes to American (or at least American-designed) watches, Xetum is one of the first brands that I recall coming across. They designed the watches in California, and then had them built in Switzerland. So, you had that Swiss reliability and accuracy, with a sort of American influence on the design. Xetum is now owned by the same folks that own Torgoen, but the designs have not been meddled with. Today, we are going hands-on with a new iteration of the Xetum Stinson.
We like Xetum watches here at WWR, and, as a matter of fact, we have another review on their watches that you’ll be seeing in a few days (that’s what the image above is from). You know what can make a great watch even better? A discount, that’s what, and that is what Xetum has…
Xetum is certainly a brand that needs no introduction to readers of this site. We’ve covered some of their other models (links), and brought you word when their latest model, the Kendrick, was released (link). Today, we’ll be bringing you our hands-on review of that very model.
